Abstract

We consider a supersymmetric ({\mathrm{SU}\left(4\right)}{c}×{\mathrm{SU}\left(2\right)}{L}×\mathrm{SU}\left(2{\right)}{R}) model with a minimal number of Higgs multiplets and Dirac and Majorana (CP)-violating phases in the neutrino flavor mixing matrix. The model incorporates the charged fermion masses and quark mixings, and uses type I seesaw to explain the solar and atmospheric neutrino oscillations. With the neutrino oscillation data of two mass squared differences and three flavor mixing angles, we employ thermal leptogenesis and the observed baryon asymmetry to find the allowed regions for the Dirac and Majorana phases. For a normal neutrino mass hierarchy, we find that the observed baryon asymmetry can be reproduced by a Dirac phase of around ({\delta }{CP}=3\pi /2), which is strongly indicated by the recent T2K and (\mathrm{NO}\nu A) data. For the case of inverted neutrino mass hierarchy, the predicted baryon asymmetry is not compatible with the observed value.
